Does the recent version of Clear Linux support legacy bios without uefi?

You can see “Remove EFI hard requirement” committed on 14 Feb

However, many people, including me, have reported clear linux not working on legacy bios.

Has anyone successfully installed Clear Linux on bare metal without uefi?

I hope this problem will be solved quickly

I cannot try it myself because I don’t have computer on BIOS.

I guess one problem is the current guide instructs you to make a UEFI live ISO and that’s why you failed starting the installer.

Probably you can try to burn a BIOS live ISO as people did for other distros.

Note: we still don’t support grub. We’ve tested this in gnome boxes, and it works with legacy boot. But largely it’s untested on real hardware.
